Irresponsible Journalism Permeates News Coverage – Bullet #90

Irresponsible Journalism Permeates News Coverage – MJEOL Bullet #90

Richard Matsuura has blasted Vanity Fair in a recent interview. Matsuura, who is 18 now, was cited in the Vanity Fair article as allegedly one of the kids to which Jackson gave wine in soda cans. Of course, this was completely false and Matsuura does not mince words about it.

Maureen Orth, the author of the defamatory article, says she stands by her source for the erroneous information. NBC reporter Mike Taibbi–who contacted Orth to get her response to Matsuura’s comments–says Orth admits she never actually talked to either Matsuura or his father before writing the article.
